A woman who was rescued from Boko Haram after being held captive for several years has said that the terrorists drink the blood of their victims.

The former captive, identified only as Amira for her safety, also said that the terrorists have an evil look in their eyes that makes them seem possessed, according to MSN.

“They have a look in their eyes—they look like they are possessed. They would even drink the blood of the people they killed,” she said.

She described how the young fighters of Boko Haram, some of whom aren’t teenagers yet, rape women and kill with impunity.

Amira also explained how she was abducted by Boko Haram insurgents after ironically fleeing her village of Michika in Adamawa State to escape the sect’s attacks.

The terrorist sect has unleashed unimaginable horror in Nigeria’s North-East and is responsible for thousands of deaths in the area.

The activities of Boko Haram have also left many like Amira, who lives in a camp for Internally Displaced Persons, homeless.

Boko Haram has been named the world’s deadliest terrorist sect, ahead of the Islamic State, by the Global Terrorism Index.
